You need to be ready.
Canadian financial institutions - including banks, credit unions, insurance companies and securities/investment firms - face an increasingly complex regulatory web. Regulators in Canada and globally are imposing increased pressure on financial institutions to assess, monitor and mitigate regulatory and operational risks.
In addition to staying compliant, today’s financial institutions need to keep up with new regulations, deal with new issues - including those created by social media and emerging technologies - and manage the human resources and technological requirements to get the job done. The speed of change is rapid and the demands are increasing.
Back for its 9th year! This intensive OsgoodePD Certificate program was developed by a select group of industry experts to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of compliance requirements and strategies to meet them. This 5-day course covers the intersection of compliance and enterprise risk management and provides you with best practices to effectively manage both risk and compliance as part of your organization’s essential line of defence. You will emerge from this valuable program armed with the most up-to-date knowledge, strategies and tactics you need to develop, implement or re-energize a state-of-the-art compliance program within your organization.

Fees include attendance, online primers, program materials, lunch and break refreshments for each of the 5 days of the program.
